Top Newer Bluegrass Songs for the period ending 3/24/13
Reported to Bluegrass Unlimited
This month, I'm making a predictive vote: The single from the upcoming Dailey and Vincent album due out in May is gonna be a big hit. Like, if I drop my pen it will fall. I'm not claiming that Dailey and Vincent are a force of nature like unto gravity, but their new album, Brothers of the Highway, is likely to be one of the biggest sellers during the 2013 festival season.
There are still a ton of great songs out there. This month, I started off with about 35 songs on my list of nominees. It took me quite a time to listen and juggle things to get it whittled down to a top 12. The more I listen to the Danny Paisley, Steeldrivers, Mark Houser, Kenny and Amanda Smith, and Joe Mullins records, the harder it is for me to pick out a favorite track! And I obviously liked the new song from Rhonda Vincent. And there's more great music coming this spring and summer!
